COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops. #1 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series.

pours a cloudy orange amber with light foam and light carbonation. Has a faintly sweet floral aroma to it. When you first drink it you can taste a little sweetness and the floral hops but immediately afterwards you get a strong bitter taste which must be the toasted grains in the beer. Has a bit of a dry after taste and kind of bitter but not too bad of a beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Bottled on 021115. Pours yellow and heady into my my glass mug. The aroma has a pleasant grainy note with a touch of bread and grassy hops. The body is light to medium. The taste is toasty at first with a clean hop finish and also kind of green like a big field.

Orange and cantaloupe nose. Clear amber, thin head. Cantaloupe and orange peel. Medium body. Interesting hop bill for a heller bock, but I like it.

Clear , golden color. Decent white head. Grainy aroma with light herbal and citrus notes. Intense , malty taste, hint of caramel , pleasant hoppy bitterness. When I was drinking it , I realized how I missed German style beer. Very good.
